Written in poetic verse, THE FLAG WE LOVE tells the story of how Old Glory solidified its place in the history and heritage of our nation - from its conception to its role in peace and war. This beautifully illustrated tribute to America's greatest symbol has inspired young readers since its publication in 1996.
Unlike any other picture book about the American flag, THE FLAG WE LOVE evokes the passion and emotion Americans feel toward the Stars and Stripes. It is a way for children and adults alike to get to know and recognize the significance behind the symbol they see every day but do not fully understand.
